Another LTTE suspect deported from Canada

Mar 18, 2011 6:02:56 AM - itnnews.lk

A second migrant from the MV Sun Sea has been deported after admitting that he was a member of the LTTE in the early 1990s.

The Immigration and Refugee Board heard that the man ordered deported had trained with the LTTE for a year, including six months with its naval arm, the sea tigers. He subsequently was assigned to protect Tamils crossing into LTTE-controlled territory from possible attacks from Sri Lankan forces. The Board was further told that after four months, he told his bosses that he wanted to quit and was punished by being sent to wash dishes for 16 months before being discharged.

In her decision, board adjudicator Daphne Shaw Dyck said even though the migrant had never engaged in battle, his training and his role with the tigers was “unambiguous,” making him inadmissible to Canada.
